'Shell Shocked' Doc Tackles NOLA Murder From Kids' Perspective
While many locals are enjoying New Orleans' growing economy and post-K resilience, entire communities still live in fear of violent crime. Last year alone, 193 people were murdered in the GNO, a number that seems incongruent with all of the rhetoric surrounding the city's recovery after The Storm. Shell Shocked: A Documentary about Growing Up in the Murder Capital of America, explores the city's notorious murder rate from the perspective of the children that live with it.

The Park in PrimeTime
The title of CNN's latest Soledad O'Brien documentary "New Orleans Rising" sounded cliche at the best, and exploitive at the worst. however, the film focused on efforts to rebuild Ponchartrain park was surprsiingly touching. On the negative side, little mention was made of the simmring frustration and lack of national support. However, the successes were good to see, and Wendell Pierce is an amazing neighbor! Of note (and question) is the positive portrayal of Commandante Nagin, and BP Claims (and Propaganda Chief) Daryl Willis. Also making a cameo is former mayoral candidate, Troy Henry.
